Course description

This course is accredited by CILIP

Our established MA Librarianship degree includes guest lectures from industry professionals and field visits. Through group work, you’ll hone your organisational and teamworking skills. We can also help you to develop leadership and management capabilities.

This CILIP-accredited course prepares you for a library career in a variety of sectors. Most applicants have several months’ work experience in a library or information-related role, but there is flexibility around this. Please contact us if you have queries about your work experience. If you’re more experienced, you could take the Professional Enhancement Programme.

Professional Enhancement Programme

The Professional Enhancement Programme is designed for experienced professionals. The emphasis is on helping you re-evaluate the way you work in the context of new and emerging ideas.

As an experienced professional, you’ll take fewer core modules than students who are starting from scratch. This leaves you free to choose more optional modules, so you can focus on what’s most relevant to you in your job.
